2.0 major GPA required

The associate degree program in social sciences is designed for students who anticipate the need for only two years of college education. Basically, it reflects the training received in the first two years of a regular four-year program, and a student may, if he or she desires, continue on to a baccalaureate degree. At the same time, a student with an associate degree will have the satisfaction of having recognition for his or her efforts, and will be able to produce a tangible certification for prospective employers.

Required Core 39 Courses (35 hours)

Social Science Primary Area (18 hours)

Select 18 hours in a single area of emphasis selected from:

  • Economics (ECON)
  • History (must be 300- or 400-level HIST courses)
  • Political Science (POLS)
  • Psychology (PSY)
  • Sociology (SOC)


 Select directed electives, as needed, to complete a total of 60 credits required for an associate degree.
